Another Cajun Friday

Once again we are ending the week with some music from the bayous. There is something about cajun music that makes it impossible to keep your feet still. The old blue bus was my home for several years. It was parked near Bayou Gosh, in Boutte (Boo-Tee), Louisiana, and quickly became a gathering spot for music, food and drink. The sound of accordians and fiddles usually kicked off the weekend.

Ya'll have a good weekend!

By gosh I know bayou gauche. An old friend (gone now) was a Parish Deputy down there. He lived in Luling. Of all the good food and good music you post I think this area has the verrrrry best. Wish I had a benet to go with your tunes.

Well Ed once again we are one the same wave link. I had it in mind this morning on my way in to work to say
that you took the bus to the rivers up North and rode on them for a while I was going to ask you to go back down
to the Ticfaw for a spell. and you beat me to it.

Small world, strrrranger! (why don't you introduce yourself some time, friend). I've got to agree, of all the places this old man has been, south Louisiana served up some of the finest food, music, and people.
My dear friend Joey, those floats down the Tickfaw River are some of my fondest memories.

On a world wide open forum I choose to remain verrrrry anonymous. Rest assured I'm no famous person being incognito. I'm just some guy who simply likes your site (and insight).
I'm learning a lot. Mr. Joey made sure someone told you how good a job you're doing a while ago. Well, you are! All the passengers agree. By the by, I see on my box of mix I spelled beignet wrong.

Fine stuff Mr. Ed. One of the joys of my recent adoption of computer technology has been to widen the scope of music I listen to.

The two songs you have shared with us here remind me of the traditional music of Newfoundland. Just the sort of thing to get me in the mood for dancing at the Christmas party tonight. (Too bad it is my turn to drive!)

Countrygrrl - Isn't it always a treat to find some really fine local music at some little place off the beaten path.

Mr. BNH - You made the connection! With all the music from Canada and discussion of the Maritimes, I wanted to end the week with some music that migrated from that area. Hope you enjoyed the party, dispite curtailing glasses of cheer.
